The demand for organic products has increased in Sweden. Sales of organic food has increased with 40 percent per year. Consumers want products without pesticides and where animals keeping is good, and they are willing to pay more for these products. Organic is no longer a nisch, but a category of products popular among many and broad consumer groups.
When the demand for organic products increase, it presents a business opportunity to the farmer. At the same time, the yield from ecological agriculture is lower than in conventional agriculture, which is a limit for the farmer's profit and the organic agriculture's climate efficiency.
Lantmännen focuses on new methods increasing the yield from organic cultivation. By developing that we contribute to decreased climate impact and a thriving farming. Lantmännen is a forerunner for sustainable agriculture and wants to create possibilities to increase the Swedish grain production, both for conventional and organic agriculture. att öka den svenska spannmålsproduktionen, för både konventionell och ekologisk odling.
